Lipozene False Advertising Class Action Lawsuit

By Mike Holter

 

LipozeneA federal class action lawsuit is claiming the Obesity Research Institute is pushing its “Lipozene” products with bogus claims that they are “safe and effective” weight loss products “clinically proven to reduce body fat.”

“In reality, Lipozene’s main ingredient, Glucomannan, is simply a water-soluble dietary fiber with no ability to cause weight loss or the reduction of body fat. Defendant’s statements about the Product’s efficacy are false and misleading, and the research relied upon by Defendant does not substantiate its claims,” the Lipozene class action lawsuit states.

The false advertising lawsuit cites several studies that conclude Glucomannan has no effect on weight loss when compared to a placebo, and that it would take 20 to 30 grams of Glucomannan a day to achieve substantial weight loss, “enough to cause severe diarrhea and other gastrointestinal distress.”

The Lipozene class action lawsuit is seeking $5 million in damages and restitution for a class of all U.S. persons who purchased Lipozene from a retail location in California or online at any time after April 1, 2011 through the date of trial.

The case is Martin Conde v. Obesity Research Institute, LLC, 12-cv-0413 RSWL (RZx), U.S. District court, Central District of California.

    I bought Lipozene because it was presented in such a way that I really thought it worked, it doesn’t work at all. I’ve spent over a hundred dollars on this product, all for nothing.

    I had hoped this would work for my wife to lose weight. I bought it at WalMart for half the price of the website AFTER I had placed the order. When I called to cancel the order, they said “it is already in process and can’t be cancelled.” She took it for a week and was so bloated and sick, she couldn.t take any more. I then found out about the lawsuit.

    I called in an order then in the same call i was inundated with offers to buy other products and the voice controlled program refused to accept my no answersnwhen id speak NO into the phone to say i didnt want anything else sent to me and it went on and on then started in on a wal mart gift card id get and i denied request seven times but it just kept asking me so i hung up. I had no idea what id ordered or not ordered.nwhen i sheard the ad i thoght maybe it wasna real product butnafternthe phone call , which bynthe way wasnall automated it was clear to me this is just another major marketing scam. After i hung up i got their contact number off their website n after 15 mins holding i got thru to a guy whonsaid he had no record of my order. well he did have record of it because when i called back next day to cancel as he toldmme they said the order had already been sent. STOP, if u havent ordered yet then dont do it. Its clearly anothrt damn crook whos in a grey area legally and getting rich selling shit. Makes me so mad if they were close by id go by and throw eggs on them and haul local police in with me to bust their slimy asses. Only in the usa where u have a license to steal in the name of Capitalism. What comes around goes around and this sob has alot coming back around to ruin his life ill assure you of that! I wont stop till i see them on the witness stand stuttering as to why they used such deceptive marketing practices if in fact they had such a good product. They know they have to sell you all they can on that first call because nobody certainly is going to call them back for a product that is full of nothing!,,

    My name is Alan R. Olson. @ yweas ago, as I was
    obeise, I saw an ad on tv about the “Miraculous” Med-
    icine, Lipozene. I have diabetes and I believed that THE
    ANSWER DID COME, LIPOZENE — was the ANSWER!
    I secretly sent for it and was going to lose each day; without telling my wife and kida, until they said, “Honey/
    Dad — your’re LOSING WEIGHT! We would all celebrate
    the DEAR MED. THAT WAS AN ANSWER TO OUR
    PRAYERS —LIPOZENE! But, that joy did not come to
    pass..I’ve even kept a box to remember — these things
    that are promised on late night tv — are mostly lies!!!
    This Is Not O.K. — Mr.Conde, please
    ad me to your Class Action,
    Thank You
    God Bless You,

    I didn’t lose any weight while using Lipozene in 2012. I went to the doctor twice because I was experiencing chest pains and diabetic symptoms. My mom just told me I could be experiencing these side effects due to me taking Lipozene. I was unaware of it until now.

  • latoya outerbridge October 21, 2013

    I purchased lipozene @ Walmart in Greenville nc when they had the special two for one the way they advertised it on the TV they said it would work. They said u didn’t have to change anything in ur daily day except taking the pills. Nothing has changed since I have been taking them except fatigue. I still have some pills left from the second bottle I was so desperate to lose the weight, it makes a woman feel so bad every doctors visit Ms Outer bridge ur obese or Ms Outer bridge u still obese. I am a single parent of two and time is not a virtue for me. This is unjust for me if any help please please contact me at my email. Tha

    I purchased lipozene @Walmart in GA sometime last year. Not only did it not work I had 2 heart attacks while taking them. Its a waste of time and money.

  • Jay February 4, 2014

    LOL @ all of you. You didn’t do “nothing” to get overweight. You had to work at it. So guess what – you’re gonna need to work at it to lose weight too. Stop complaining. My 9 year old even knows better. Sheesh — the only “magic in a bottle” is beer.

    it w does not work at all.

  • Brenda McMinn April 2, 2014

    I wish I had hung up on their recordings that, as Jeff said, won’t take no for an answer. I’ve spent $150 on Lipozine which would have been worth it to me if only it worked. They make sure they get your credit card information shortly after the beginning of all the bs. How can I add my name to the class action law suit?

  • Anonymous June 1, 2014

    I picked up 2 packages of Lipozene at Walgreens in hopes of reducing body fat. No such luck. Have lost no body fat or weight.

    HOW DO I JOIN N THE LAWSUIT

  • Pat August 6, 2014

    I ordered from a TV commercial. The receipt had the date that the product shipped and I was told that is the date for the 30 day trail and could not get my money back – 30 day money back guarantee! really!!!. I took it for almost 3 weeks and I didn’t lose even 1 pound. I was physically ill on a few occasions and could see it was just an expanding jell. The claims on TV are totally false!!! I’d like to add my name to the class action law suit!
